  1. I'd rather have 3ds analogue sticks (or touch sensitive ones, like on the steam controller) and a real dpad instead of the button dpad.
    Also Link's Awakening is the go to game to say those gamepads are okay. This is one game, which other one failed to include a true dpad option? Also that explains the left dpad, which game would benefit from the right dpad?
    Also also: why no gyro? The zero2 was way smaller and had gyro (wills that ever come out BTW?)

  2. Does this controller work on iOS 13 in xinput mode using the hidden pairing technique (settings -> accessibility -> switch control -> switches -> Bluetooth devices)?

  3. As if 2 d-pads wasn't odd enough, they both click and function as L3 and R3. Aside from that surprising feature, I do like the design of it as it reminds me of a portable handheld from the back.
